Princess in Pink by Meg Cabot
I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars
Caution: Spoiler alert!
Prom is coming soon and Mia still hasn’t been asked. Why isn’t her boyfriend, Michael Moscovitz, asking her? There are only two weeks until prom when this book starts. Mia has been dreaming of prom for years.
Mia and all of her friends try to think of reasons why Michael wouldn’t have asked her. Maybe he wants to ask her on her birthday. Maybe he wants to ask her in a romantic way. Maybe he just doesn’t want to go.
Mia’s 15th Birthday occurs at the beginning of this book. It starts out perfectly. She even gets a cell phone from her parents. Her dad gives her a pen to write with in her diary. Michael also give her a beautiful gift, but it’s not tickets to the prom.
Even Grandmere, the one Mia was not expecting a good gift from, gives Mia something amazing. She is so thankful. Mia’s is having her best birthday yet. That is, until an incident occurs, making a not-so-perfect end to a perfect night.
Only Grandmere would bring her poodle to a fancy 4 star restaurant. When Rommel escapes, he causes a waiter to trip. This waiter, named Jang Bu, spills lobster bisque on Grandmere. He is fired for this, although it is not his fault.
Lily Moscovitz starts a protest. She is mad that innocent Jang Bu was fired. Jang Bu marches with her, and she finds out how handsome he is. She runs away with him, despite having a boyfriend.
I enjoyed this book. It is the 5th book in the Princess Diaries series. It is a young adult romance novel. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys books about teens and their lives throughout high school, or anyone who likes books about royalty.
This book is also relatable. One of my favorite quotes from this book is “Even princesses have dreams.” This shows that even someone with a seemingly picture perfect life has dreams and goals. They also have problems.
No one actually has a perfect life. We are all humans. We all make mistakes. This book is written in notes between friends, instant messages, diary entries, etc.
